The Rock-afire Explosion was a fictional animatronic character band that played in Showbiz Pizza Place from 1980 to 1992. The characters in the band were various anthropomorphized animals, including a brown bear, a grey wolf, a silverback gorilla, and other species. They performed medleys of classic rock, pop, and country music, as well as original compositions and comedic skits.
The show was created and manufactured by inventor Aaron Fechter through his company Creative Engineering, Inc. in Orlando, Florida; in addition to overseeing the production of the animatronics, Fechter also provided the voices for several characters. When Showbiz Pizza rebranded in 1992, the band was replaced by Chuck E. Cheese characters.
